Tail Bags... Should I bag his tail?
I want to... I really do.
I'm entertaining the thought of begging my geldings tail this winter to try and get it to grow longer and thicker... but I'm still debating over it. My boy is turned out 24/7 in a 15 acre pasture (though this winter we'll probably open the gate so our two pastures merge into the normal 50 acres). His tail is already long and thick... it comes within an inch or so of touching the ground when it's brushed out and his tail is actually really thick... almost as thick as my mares tail (my mare has enough tail for two horses, it's so thick, but short).
Anyway, considering the fact that he's outside 24/7... would it be a good idea to bag it? I put it up in a pasture braid earlier (along with my mares tail) and I put pasture braids in his mane before letting him go...
